All banks passed CCAR this year. Any thoughts on the consulting business? Big 4? OW? MBB?
I am joining Big 4. I have limited US work permit and visa, and that’s dependent on my spouse visa. My only best option is to get picked up in H1 lottery, which I believe is somewhat impossible. I want to know what options do I have to continue working here? Shall I go for one year masters program or do I move to some other country? Anyone faced similar situation?
I heard tax partners at Deloitte have a much better compensation package and pension than any of the other big 4. Can anyone in the know confirm this? layoffs are tough, but this is wrong of D
As a senior manager with 9 years yoe in B4. I feel like sales is not my thing but I am ok with delivery , problem solving. What should I consider: I love talking to people but hate the sales..how did people make the transition and be successful I consulting Are there non sales-sy partners ?
Non-US / UK consulting partners - I have been long following the posts here. What I realise is that the US partners feel very strongly that being a B4 partner is best opportunity once could have (maybe just followed by FAANG). With the $1M+ pay and a pension, potentially it makes a lot of sense. With no pensions and some of start ups, Tech companies paying more in other countries, global roles (vs local focus) - what are your views about considering opportunities outside B4
Planning to use Bonvoy Titanium Elite benefit to get 40% off a hotel mattresses. Any recommendations on the best mattress? Or should I buy directly through one of the big 4 manufacturers?

What’s up with these consultants from some of these Big 4 firms messaging me for a “business opportunity to earn additional income”? Sounds like the pitch for a pyramid scheme, yes?
Am trying to switch into tech transformation or strategy from implementation, as it aligns more with my experience. Anyone able to give a referral to another Big 4 who has this offering??
Looking to move into more traditional consulting at BCG. I have 4 yrs exp in industry (pharma) 2 years @ Big 4 all in Program Management. Any advice? Any MBB folks who would let me pick their brain?
I am a Manager at a big 4 international tax considering switch to M&A Tax in another big 4 or a prestigious firm International Tax group but with more structure work. Which one is better for a long-term plan (~2 years) of going to private with a mid/upper management position that is not compliance oriented? As for me, I was heavy on compliance until recent and wanted to focus on getting planning experience and management skills forward. I am a CPA and an attorney, but not a JD.
For 2020 Taxes was anyone able to take a Home Office Expense deduction while working W2 for MBB or Big 4?
With the 1/16/22 pay raises PwC just did I only need a 15% raise this July when I’m on track for manager promotion to cross six figures. That’s almost a sure thing it’ll be more than 15% right? Also I live in very LCOL, I know six figures only as a manager is not normal nationwide

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression. At this point I’m working for a well known public company in SaaS, in their SMB segment, which has been great. But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?
Came across a dated post on McKinsey Engagement Manager EM pay increases from associate. Keen on hearing from EMs working there. Is this post accurate in that if you were to accelerate within one year your pay is still basically associate level or does your pay actually change with position. Similarly how does bonus change? Even irrespective of promotions does salary materially change for say an A2 vs. A1? https://www.reddit.com/r/consulting/comments/4597qk/em_at_mckinsey_salary/

I just started at a new company 2 months ago with the expectation of having 3-4 people on my team. However, my team size will be increasing to 7. I don’t really want to rock the boat so early at my new job especially since I’m still in the “drinking from the firehose” phase, but this is going to be a significant increase in responsibility. We only have pay review in January of each year. Would it be crazy to ask about a raise later this month?
